Shame there are now holes in the panels though  >_<

Hi Ben

It is a shame but the car looks much better without the arches, it's another job I was going to ask you to quote for when its with you for the other repairs,

I agree, It looks tonnes better!

 

Holes can be welded up so all good!

 

Cheers

Fantastic thread Ben and John, I loved reading all of it. Loved the look with all the black accents, but it looks even better with the standard parts fitted to it. Your Clubman is stunning! 

 

The custom fabrication of the different body panels is really neat.

This is how the car looked originally.

Ben did an amazing restoration job and his fabricating skills are exceptional, the car is currently back with Ben to have some accident damage carried out (insurance works) and also to repair the holes where the wheel arches were fixed, he is also going to replace the windscreen and carry out a few other bits.

Definitely prefer the look now without the big bucket seats and without the gold (orange?) wheels.

Thanks for posting those John. I hadn't seen those before.

 

I hope you don't mind me re-adding them to the thread so they are visible here

p.s, those seats are still languishing in my storeroom.. I think they are much better suited to being shoved in the corner of a dark room away from human eyes :lol:

Hi Ben

 

No problem with you posting them, one day I  will learn how to post photos properly.

 

The seats are ugly monsters but were very comfortable, they definitely didn't suit the Mini.
